  • Q) What is Margin & Leverage?

    A) Margin Trading is trading financial instruments based on margin which is a guaranteed deposit based on a certain percentage that is requested from clients in order to open a new position. Margin guarantees the coverage of losses made by the client in the case that the market moves against him. Deposits are transferred back to the account when the position is closed or hedged.
    Clients are required to maintain a minimum amount of funds for each open position held in their trading account, in accordance with the chosen leverage. These funds are known as Margin Requirements and are considered to be a guarantee and not a cost.
    Leverage is defined as borrowed capital, such as margin, used to increase the potential return of an investment. In cases where the client uses leverage for an investment and the market moves in the opposite direction to the client’s expectation, the loss on the investment is much greater than what it would have been if the investment had not been leveraged. Leverage magnifies both profits and losses. The higher leverage, the higher the level of risk and the higher possibility of a profitable return or loss.
    Once the free margin/available margin of a trading account falls below Margin Call level, the trading account is considered to be on Margin Call. The client is recommended to add new funds to his/her trading account in order to bring the free margin of the trading account to its required level. In cases where the trading account is not supported with additional funds and the free margin falls below the stop out level, the trading account will be stopped out.

  • Q) What are CFDs?

    A) Contracts for Difference (CFDs) means a contract that you enter into with the Company, for the Difference between the value of an Instrument as specified on the Trading Platform at the time of opening a Transaction, and the value of such Instrument at the time of closing the Transaction.
    A Contract for Difference (or CFD) is a type of derivative that gives exposure to the change in value of an underlying asset (such as an index or equity). It allows traders to leverage their capital (by trading notional amounts far higher than the money in their account) and provides all the benefits of trading securities, without actually owning the product. If you still wish us to proceed on your behalf, we may do so, but we shall not be able to determine whether trading in CFDs is appropriate/suitable for you.
    Contracts for Difference (CFDs) on spot Forex, spot precious metals, futures, shares or any other commodities available for trading are highly leveraged Financial Instruments and involve a high level of risk. It is possible that the Client loses all his/her invested Capital.
    Therefore, these products may not be suitable for all types of investors and the Client should ensure that he/ she has understood the risk involved and if necessary the Client should seek independent expert advice.
    In practical terms, if you buy a CFD at $10 then sell it at $11, you will receive the $1 difference. Conversely, if you went short on the trade and sold at $10 before buying back at $11, you would pay the $1 difference.

  • Q) What is spread?

    A) All currency transactions involve a bid/ask spread.
    Spread is the difference between the bid and ask prices.
    When trading any financial instrument, you are offered two prices; the bid price and ask price. The bid price is the selling price and the ask price refers to the price offered for buying.
    The difference between the bid and ask is called spread and varies for each financial instrument traded.
    The measurement between the two prices is usually referred to as:
    Pips – for forex currency pairs
    cents – for spot precious metals
    ticks – for future (OTC): Currencies, precious metals, commodities and CFDs USA
    points – for Future (OTC): Indices, Energies, CFD Indices and CFD Energies
